    Program Description

    In organizational psychology research, healthcare is one of the main industries that scientists focus on when researching the phenomenon of burnout. Why is that? Why is healthcare often so stressful that it induces emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and reduced personal accomplishments in its workers? Is the fault (and the solution) of this problem up to healthcare workers to determine? What can healthcare organizations do to address the significant amount of burnout, stress, and loss of productivity rampant in the industry? This webinar will answer these questions and discuss how creating a psychologically healthy workplace can help.

    Psychologically healthy workplaces integrate employee goals of health and well-being and organizational goals of performance and productivity. While the actual programs and policies of a psychologically healthy workplace may vary, research in organizational psychology informs us that all psychologically healthy workplaces include these critical components:

    • Employee involvement – involving employees in decision-making
    • Health and safety – maximizing employees physical and mental health
    • Employee growth and development – creating opportunities to expand knowledge, skills, and abilities of employees
    • Work-life balance – allowing employees flexibility and autonomy to address responsibilities and life outside of work
    • Employee recognition – allowing employees to be singled out and rewarded for their contributions

    Effective and frequent organizational communication is the foundation of each of these components, and is essential to developing employees’ perceptions of trust, fairness, and value. Organizational culture, climate, and leadership are examples of the contextual pieces of a psychologically healthy workplace. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to creating these workplaces. Rather, organizations must determine what strategies and programs align with their mission, values, and goals that include the above components.

    Key Takeaways

    After this workshop, participants will be able to:

    • Define a psychologically healthy workplace.
    • Identify the six dimensions that characterize a psychologically healthy workplace (PHW).
    • Identify the characteristics of an unhealthy organization.

    SIG Event: The First Ever ATD NYC Learning Lab and Networking Event

    When it comes to talent development practices, many of us stick to the tried and true because, let’s face it, when you're in front of key decision makers, it is not the time to experiment with untested approaches. We may be making our clients happy but are we pushing ourselves beyond our comfort zone? Is there something amazing that we’re not trying because we can’t risk failure?

    Before Chris Rock hosted the Oscars he dropped into several local comedy clubs to test out his material and work on his timing. What if talent professionals could do the same thing? Imagine a place with a live audience of learners that would give you real time feedback on new things you’re trying out, so you get a chance to practice and refine your work before presenting it to your clients in “prime time.”

    Well, look no further. The ATD NYC Learning Lab is that place.

    We are excited to announce the pilot of the ATD NYC Learning Lab: a safe space where talent professionals can practice and take risks. A place to try out new and innovative tools and techniques for helping people learn and grow. Some of these experiments may succeed. Some may completely bomb. But that’s okay. We can learn just as much from the failures as from the successes. This is a no-judgement zone for learning and innovation

    This event is part of the programming for the ATD NYC Special Interest Groups. It is a pilot event. If successful, we hope to offer Learning Labs to ATD NYC members once every quarter.

    What to Expect

    Every Learning Lab will feature 2-4 individuals from among those who register who will lead/facilitate a short 15-30-minute stand-alone hands-on “experiment” followed by feedback from the audience of learners, which will consist of the rest of the group.

    Learning Labs will be followed by optional after-events where attendees can debrief and network further (since our VR World after-event was so successful!)

    The after-event for the August 22 session will be at a TBD location within walking distance of the main event.


    5:30-6:00 pm  (Optional) Networking
    6:00-8:00 pm  Learning Lab (2-4 participant-led “experiments” followed by feedback)
    8:00-9:30 pm  (Optional) After-Event Networking at Pier A 

    This session's leaders/facilitators: 

    • Jack Appleman, doing a potential new exercise for his "Write like you speak" workshop
    • John Censor, testing a digital business game called "Bottom Line Leadership"
    • Linette A Gomez, doing a mini-experiment on Diversity and Inclusion

    What’s in it for those who attend without leading/facilitating?

    • Exposure to what new learning techniques you’ve heard about look like in practice.
    • An opportunity to learn from other talent professionals through hands-on experience.

    Examples of Potential Learning Lab Experiments

    Learning Lab experiments should be interactive and hands-on for participants. Don’t simply show the group something and ask for feedback. Your experiment must require one or more participants present to do something. For example:

    • Malcolm is intrigued by a new coaching model but is concerned it has potential dangers as well as benefits. He decides to try it out with a few people at the Learning Lab (with others acting as observers) to get feedback and some more insight on what he thinks of the model.

    • Ash wants to use virtual breakout rooms in a webinar session they’re designing but has never used this tool before and is afraid it won’t work as anticipated. Ash brings the virtual breakout activity to try out at the Learning Lab.

    • Preeta is trying to move away from using PowerPoint as a crutch in the training she designs and delivers and wants to challenge herself to deliver a training “sans slides,” using only interactive activities. She decides to use the Learning Lab as a safe space to practice and build more confidence in working this way.

    • Quinn has been asked to design a full-length training on a process that she feels probably only needs a good performance support resource. She designs a job aid for the process and brings it to the Learning Lab to test if her resource is sufficient for getting participants through the process.

    What do I need to do if I want to lead/facilitate as part of the Learning Lab?

    The deadline for submitting to lead/facilitate has passed.

    How are the leaders/facilitators for the session selected?

    Those who submit the proposal form and meet the above criteria will be accepted for the available slots on a first-come, first-served basis with ATD NYC members taking priority over non-members.

    There are 2-4 slots for leaders/facilitators at this session. The exact number of spots depends on the amount of time needed for the proposed learning experiments.

    We will announce the leaders/facilitators for this session by end of day Wednesday, August 15th.

    What if I just want to attend without leading/facilitating?

    Just register here to attend and be prepared to participate in and provide feedback on a variety of hands-on learning experiments.
